A lot of animal death in the news, today.
I know I’m an asshole, and as sad as this is, it kinda made me laugh a little.
A deformed “celebrity” bunny in Germany (it had no ears, that makes it a hamster) got stepped on by a camera man.
It didn’t suffer. It was a direct hit.
I would have loved to see the dude’s face. That “Ah shit, son.” moment when he dropped the boot on it.
Here’s the article.
“BERLIN — An earless baby bunny that was a rising star on Germany’s celebrity animal scene had his 15 minutes of fame brought to an abrupt end when he was accidentally stepped on by a television cameraman.
The fate of 17-day-old Til, a bunny with a genetic defect, was plastered across German newspapers on Thursday, the same day a small zoo in Saxony was to have presented him to the world at a press conference.
The cameraman told Bild newspaper he hadn’t seen Til, who had buried himself in hay, when he took the fateful step backward Wednesday.
Zoo director Uwe Dempewolf tells Spiegel magazine Til didn’t suffer: “It was a direct hit.”
Germany has been home to several global animal celebrities in recent years, including polar bear Knut and Paul the prognosticating octopus.”
When I first read this, I thought the Polar Bear’s name was “Cunt”.
I giggled like a little fat kid.
